OPPO has quietly launched a new lower-end A-series phone in Australia with the A3s now available at JB Hifi for a wallet friendly $279.

The phone has a whopping 6.2″ HD+ (1520×720) resolution 19:9 aspect ratio display and comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage all powered by a simply massive 4,230mAh battery.

The OPPO A3s also carries on the OPPO camera phone torch with a dual rear camera sensor array including 13MP & 2MP sensors. The front 8MP sensor will capture your selfies, with OPPO’s AI Beauty 2.0 software mode built-in to offer its insights on improving your natural talents.

The spec list includes :

  • 6.2 inches In-Cell HD+ (1520 by 720 pixels) resolution Display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 Processor with Adreno 506 GPU
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB Expandable Up to 256GB (microSD)
  • Rear Cameras 13MP (f/2.2) & 2MP (f/2.4) with LED Flash
  • Front Camera 8MP (f/2.2)
  • Wi-Fi802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS
  • 4230mAh Battery
  • ColorOS 5.1, based on Android 8.1
  • 156.2×75.6xs8.2mm @ 168g

One thing to note is that the phone does NOT include NFC for tap & pay, though that’s fairly unsurprising for most OPPO handsets. It does however have a headphone jack, so that’s a big bonus!

The A3s comes with Android 8.1, though it’s built on OPPO’s custom skin ColorOS 5.1. OPPO has released the phone in two colours: Dark Purple, Red, with both colours particularly fetching. You can get the phone from JB Hifi now, or check out the OPPO Homepage for more info.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
